Donald Haywood's Poetry

  • “LOVE ME”

    Love me because I try to touch life within the

    framework of uncertainty!

    Love me in the shadows of my indecisions as I strive to

    gain knowledge!

    Love me in silence of my hurts and the noise of my

    confusions!

    Love me for the feelings of my heart, not the fears of

    my mind!

    Love me in my search for truth, though I may stumble

    upon fallacy!

    Love me as I pursue my dreams sometimes retarded

    by illusions!

    Love me as I grow to know myself even during the

    times of stagnation!

    Love me because I seek harmony not mans discord!

    Love me for my body that I wish to share with

    affection, wrapping you in warmth!

    Love me because we are different as we are

    the same!

    Love me that our time together will be spent in

    growing, kindling the world with understanding!

    Love me not with expectations, but with hopes

    that I will love you the same!
